Friends of the Bijou

Your Support Makes a Difference!

When you attend a show at the Bijou Theatre you’re helping to preserve the theatre and our 112-year legacy of providing all-inclusive arts & culture to East Tennessee. As a non-profit historic theatre, we cannot survive on ticket sales alone.

Individual giving through our Friends of the Bijou program is a vital component of the Bijou’s sustainability. Membership gifts are tax-deductible and support the historic preservation, education and outreach programs, and the continuation of world-class presentations throughout the year.

With several different membership and payment options available, anyone can become a Friend of the Bijou!
